For many years, various health care professionals have disagreed about the treatment of spine-injured athletes at the scene. How should protective athletic equipment, such as chin straps and helmets, be managed? When can the equipment be removed? What is the safest way to immobilize and transport the athlete?
Because each health care group has its own protocols, there have been no standard guidelines for managing a suspected spine injury on the field and avoiding secondary injury—until now.
The Spine Injury Management Video is an important and visual reference that provides new information on treating spine-injured athletes and demonstrates step-by-step strategies for ideal care. These techniques can be applied to injured athletes in a variety of sports including football, lacrosse, soccer, and gymnastics.
This video is based on the landmark report “Prehospital Care of the Spine-Injured Athlete: A Document From the Inter-Association Task Force for Appropriate Care of the Spine-Injured Athlete.” Led by the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA), the task force consisted of representatives from more than 30 emergency medical associations and sports medicine organizations in the country. In this report, the group presents a uniform protocol for the appropriate management of suspected spine injuries. Most important, it provides guidelines for helping professionals avoid improper care that could result in secondary injuries. These sound guidelines have been recommended by many representatives of various health care specialties including the NATA and physicians' and emergency medical service organizations.
The Spine Injury Management Video takes you from the field to the trauma center to demonstrate how athletic trainers and emergency professionals respond and apply these new guidelines to spine-injured players. The video vividly drives home the correct procedures for proper start-to-finish management of the scene, covering many areas:
-Who should provide prehospital care of the injured athlete
-Tools and techniques for protective athletic equipment removal
-Safe immobilization and transportation
-Care for suspected catastrophic spinal injury and appropriate prevention techniques Fortunately, injuries to the spine are relatively rare in athletes. However, when they do occur, there are no second chances—they must be treated promptly and correctly. With this video, you'll get expert guidance in developing a sound emergency response plan, deepen your understanding of the mechanisms of injury, and learn strategies to prevent injuries.
The video is also an ideal training tool for increasing your staff's skill and instilling in them the confidence to carry out their vital roles in the care, supervision, protective athletic equipment removal, and transportation of the injured athlete.
The video can also be purchased as part of a kit that includes instructor's materials on CD-ROM, a palm card and a poster. Click on links below to learn more!
